Starting a Shopify dropshipping business looks simple. But if you realize that running a  business is a lot harder than just starting a business, the toughest part is about getting customers for your online store. Let us come back to that later.

Steps to start a Shopify dropshipping business

  1. Finding the right dropshipping suppliers and merchants. The most common ones are Amazon and AliExpress
  2. Signing up with Shopify for a store.
  3. Integrating dropshipping plugins/extensions like Oberlo
  4. Setting up an inventory management system
  5. Setting up a customer support team to handle complaints and inquiries.
  6. Handling billing & payments – you should integrate with Paypal or some other payment gateway to receive payments into your bank account.

But above all, the most important point that defines your success as a dropshipper is your customer acquisition strategy. In a dropshipping business on Shopify with smaller margins, it is always about finding a cheap and sustainable customer acquisition model. When cost per acquisition has to be kept low to remain profitable, organic traffic is the best possible solution.

But that will come at a cost. Organically building your SEO with backlinks will be time-consuming. Hence, making your product pages content-rich and long-tail optimized is the best solution. Here is a case study on how this strategy works for your online store: http://www.adzis.com/case-study…
